Apple trees, gold leaf, roses, and antique chandelier crystals...

I had a vision of holiday magic free of cliche...festive but peaceful....and this is the result.  The apple trees and roses are a bit of ancient symbology (and a nod to my mother's Anglican traditions), the gold and the crystal...purely for sparkle.  Add to that the cocktail of scents---roses, a Diptyque Feu de Bois candle burning, gingerbread cookies---and I'd have to say we're in a holiday mood.

  2. oh it looks it looks just gorgeous....
